This is admittedly a stupid thread, but what the hell. I recently posted in another thread that I played golf in a regular foursome for sometime with the Doctor who operated on Natalie Gulbis and Peter Jacobsen. So it made me think of what other type 'six degrees of separation' stories are out there.
Here's another one of mine although admittedly it's a tragic one. Back in the early 90's the Pamela Smart murder trial was going on in Derry, New Hampshire. A few movies were made about this case (Nicole Kidman played her in one of the movies). Well it turned out that my neighbor who owned the land where our house was built (Haverhill, MA.) sold it to Billy Sullivan's ( the teenage lover of Pam Smart / murderer of Greg Smart) uncle. Our neighbor went to school with Sullivan's mother who at a high school reunion was told by Sullivan's mother that her brother (the killer's uncle) built spec houses.
Anyway, you get the drift. Not only did one of the killer's (of Greg Smart) uncle build our house, but his mother did the last cleaning and left a nice bouquet of flowers with a nice note. Haverhill, MA. is about 25 minutes from Derry, NH. where the murder took place. It was a huge story locally and eventually nationally.
On a side note Billy Sullivan (the trigger man) and his other teenage co-defendants convicted of the murder plea bargained a 28 year sentence in exchange for testifying against Pamela Smart. They were all recently released I believe in the last year or so. Pam Smart got life without parole for the murder of her husband Greg and sits in a prison in upstate New York.
Any other irrelevant 'six degrees of separation' stories out there?
